    Let us also dare to dream that the aforementioned National Museum of African American History will have more than a footnote section related to the events of June 19, 1865

    Excellent work Ms. Gillans! Keep looking. Keep finding. Thanks also to Mary Moody Northern Endowment for hanging on to such historically significant pieces and for making this monumental donation.

    Hope there is more!

    Thanks, but real kudos go to MMNE.

    I dare to dream Uncle Bacchus will be among the first exhibits at the 2015 grand opening of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture. I dare. -Sharon

    Congrats Sharon on your excellent work and amazing discovery. I am glad the Moody family was willing to share these national treasures. I look forwad to visiting the Smithsonian.

    Truly amazing, especially the note that gave Uncle Baccus free passage to move unattended among the white marketplace.
